The ‘Dark Age’ and What We Must Overcome

The 'Dark Age' and What We Must Overcome
The ‘Dark Age’ and What We Must Overcome

We must overcome…

Woven inexplicably into the fabric of life,
is the knowing of good and right,
what in action is appreciated
and what in thought is exonerated,
yet we live in the contentions of a ‘dark age’
where spiritual values have all but been been quashed,
for the self-gilded cages of accumulation and greed,
creating an imbalance in a world so lost,
pleading kindness and understanding.

The golden ages are gone,
yet they will return if we cleanse the world
of its current malaise, its superficial gaze into self,
where much has been lost
to arrogance and self-importance,
an imbalance with all states and the natural world,
a departure from right,
perceptions within endless night,
as strife rises to the point of collapse.

In our lowest ebb,
humanity will once again restore its faith,
not in religious dogma, but in spirituality,
the balance of body, mind and emotions,
to follow our natural inclinations to understand,
not to destroy, compete or stand opposed,
but to accept brotherhood and overcome ignorance,
by the quiet ascension of purpose and paradigms
that feed the soul, not question life.

    It does appear that the ancients had far more together that our so-called advanced society. What is most important seems to be lost. Thanks Ralph.
